ACT Civil Union get the green light

Kevin Rudd has stated that he won't veto the ACT government's move to implement Civil Union legislation.

This is good news for same sex couples in Australia and the first step to removing discrimination and is a nice change to the Howard legacy.

It should also mean the same sex civil unions entered into overseas will be recognised by ACT.

The pressure will now go on the other Australian states to introduce similar legislation.
